Orme - Felona & Serona vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 27-VM LP 178
Published in a beautiful gatefold sleeve that perfectly replicates the Famous Charisma original and is on translucent blue vinyl!

In the heyday of progressive rock, there was a concerted effort, especially with the Italian groups, to break them into the bigtime in the USA. The general perception was that to do that, they had to sing in English with English lyrics. Which led to - in my opinion - a lot of 'spaghetti English sung', somewhat inferior versions of really great classics of Italian progressive rock that for some Americans represent the way they heard these great albums and stir great nostalgia in their loins. One of the best done of these jobs was the English language version of Orme's masterwork, which featured lyrics specifically written for the project by Peter Hammill. This version was released in the UK on Charisma in the mid 70s and went out of print reasonably soon and has never been available since on vinyl. Until now.

"Felona e Sorona is a concept album that finally consacrated the trio as one of the most important Italian Pop-Rock band of the seventies and became a constant best-seller in their catalog, both in Italy and abroad."

"Le Orme's fifth release, Felona e Sorona, is generally considered their masterwork...As with any ambitious project such as this, there is plenty for the listener to sink their teeth into. Many dynamic changes between the singer- songwriter tendencies of Aldo Tagliapietra and the bombastic keyboards of Tony Pagliuca. Overall, another classic Le Orme album and a must listen."-Tom Hayes/Gnosis
